This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Can you tell?? I love the Maxis 2 Tile Talking Table, one thing wrong with it, there was only one size.

So I made 3 more.

One tile square, one tile round, and a 3 tile long. Then because there was a little problem on the original mesh, what can I say, it bugged me at least. The skirt, the part of the frame that supports the table top looked to short to me, so I redid the original too.

The tables are linked to the Maxis table so they will all use the Maxis original colors and any recolors made for it. For this reason the new meshes are not recolorable unless you recolor the Maxis original. I did a recolor of the table and matching chair in a yellow that I call Maise (Maize) because I needed one for a kitchen I was making so I included it here for you.

And because I like tablecloths I made a set to fit all the tables with recolors and they also fit most any other table too.

I used only base game objects to create them and had SimPE set to base game so hopefully they will be compatible with any game version.

UPDATE 12/12 -- Made a couple of changes in the files after testing in a base game. They are now definately base game compatible.

All tables have about the same poly and vert counts as the Maxis original, I only reshaped them.

The tablecloths --
1x1 - 800 poly, 585 vert
1x1 round - 1440 poly, 930 vert
1x2 - 1400 poly, 1046 vert
1x3 - 1862 poly, 1400 vert

As always, my rules for my meshes --

Free to recolor and post for download as you wish, as long as the mesh itself remains a FREE download. You are welcome to use it on any lots you post for download as well. Please do not take and post as your own, even though it's not much, it is my work,

Enjoy, Kat

What's not to love about the Maxis 2 Tile Talking Table? I love it! And now that I have more styles of it, I can love it even more!

Thanks CTNutmegger for these wonderful tables!

I love your work SO MUCH, and these tables are my new favorites! The fact that they use recolors I already have, or have made, just makes them ten times better, IMO. And tablecloths, to boot!! THANK YOU!

I have no problem at all with the two-tile and three-tile tsbles, but I can't seem to place the one tile tables in my game...they show up in the catalog... I click on them, and the price and description come up, but the hand tool won't pick it up Any advice?

I don't know, I had no problem placing or using them in a no expansion game, the only thing I can recommend is to redownload them and try again. Are you sure your sim has enough money to buy them? Sometimes we forget to watch the simoleon amount until you can't choose something from the catalog.

:D

These are awesome, but I have a couple of requests:

1. Any chance you could post a version of the 2-tile one that has the same GUID as the Maxis one so that only yours will show up in the catalog? My catalog is so crowded, that anything I can do to make it less crowded is a godsend.

2. Any chance you can make a 2x2 version also?

Feel free to PM me with any lot requests. I've mostly done house trailers in the past.

Thanks

I tried doing a 2-tile that would override the Maxis original, but it kept giving me errors with the recolors, I may try it again sometime.

As for a 2x2, I'll see what I can do, can't promise just when though, I have several other things going right now.

Wow I love them sooo much, thanks!

One TEENY-TINY request... could you possibly make the round table in a 3 x 3 and one of the rectangle ones 2 x 3, they had some of those large round dining tables on sims online and I just loved them lol. But thanks again!

I put these in my game and the single tile table overwrote a maxis single tile table. One of the exterior ones - the wooden one (not metal and wood - sorry, don't know its name off by hand.)

OK - it seems like it was another object(s) conflicting with both yours and the maxis table.

Did you get it straightened out?? I know mine has it's own GUID so it can't overwrite anything.

I really like more modern tables but I am just glad to have any new tables. I've been looking for one tile tables so I was glad to find these. So even though I've never used this table much I might now just because of the different sizes you've made. I appreciate your hard work on this.
